Palladium-Catalyzed Carboxylative Coupling of Allylstannanes and allyl halides

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A three-component carboxylative coupling between allyl halides, allylstannanes, and CO2 to produce allyl esters is catalyzed by Pd and Pt phosphine complexes. Allyl chloride and allyltributylstannane are thus converted to propenyl butenoate in excellent yield. Cross coupling of two different allyl components produces a nearly statistical mixture of all four possible esters. Tentative mechanistic pathways for the catalytic reaction are proposed.
